Bush the Barbarian

What the Globe and Mail really thinks of his administration:

As U.S. emerges from dark age, Canada’s scientific advantage fades
U.S. approval of human stem-cell trial heralds research renaissance

I guess the Globe’s headline writer doesn’t know the Renaissance came after the Middle Ages, not the Dark Ages.

  1. Arrogant hateful left-leaning ‘journalists’ just can’t help themselves. They make each other feel good every time they get a dig in – but it’s so boring and predictable.

  2. This stem cell trial has nothing to do with Obama. It’s privately funded, it uses a cell line that’s OK for NIH funding anyway and Obama hasn’t changed any stem cell policies yet.
    This story seems oddly anti-Canadian on some level. Why couldn’t Canada get to such a trial in eight years of supposed advantage?

  3. Otter, don’t you know that the average left leaning journalist knows nothing about pure and applied science? In the poli-aci educated universe knowledge of what really makes the world go around ends at mastering turning on a light switch.

  4. *Umm, the “Dark Ages” refers to the “Middle Ages.” That is, they’re the same thing.*
    Note: no one except idiot journalists even refers to the `Dark Ages’ anymore – and no one except idiot commentors on blogs thinks the `Middle’ Ages is synonymous with the Dark Ages.
    (note: the term `Dark Ages’ refers to the period fifth to eighth century, of which at one time, very little written material was known; it referred only to how this age was `dark’ to history, not the way people behaved. And it isn’t even true any more, we know lots of things about that period).
    to the issue at hand:
    If it is `barbarian’ to ban stem-cell research, is this not the case in Canada right now?
    And didn’t this come about as a result of a FEMINIST Royal Commission on New Reproductive Technologies in the 1990s?
